Episode description

The More Sibyl Podcast Presents: The One with Alex
Meet Alex: Alex grew up in Trujillo, Peru and is one of the amazing 20 year-olds I have ever come in contact with. He was an exchange student here in Oklahoma, and in this episode, we explored what growing up in Peru was like, his triumphs and regrets as an exchange student in the US, and his future ambitions.

According to Alex:
"I come from a multicultural family; being Latin, Hispanic, and Peruvian is such a blessing to me. Peru is such a multicultural place; we got so many influences around the world. We pretty much are still in the shadow of the Inca Empire. We were a Spanish colony for so long. If you wanna eat, visit Peru; if you wanna experience culture, visit Peru. In addition to visiting Machu Picchu, there are many other beautiful places to visit. Peruvians are warm and friendly, and the country is also very inviting. If I could choose one thing I love about Peru, it would have to be the food."

On why he is interested in international affairs and diplomacy, Alex had this to say:

“I do believe that together, we can achieve a lot. Sometimes, when we do not get involved with other people (from other countries), we see more differences than similarities. We are in an era of globalization, every culture must contribute something."

PS: In this episode, I throw out a theory of how I think Nigerians cannot call dibs on being the custodians of plantains. There are some African influences in Peru, and we explored the food and music angles.


Fun facts about Alex:
He is super worldly and knows a lot about several countries and their cultures.
I think he is going to be a UN Ambassador someday; say you heard it first on this show.
Like me, he loves plantains, FRIENDS (the series), and Bossa nova (Brazilian music genre)
Takeaway Points:
Quinoa is an ancient food that originated with the Incas in the mountains of Peru and Bolivia. It was a food highly revered by the Incas.
We can connect with so many people from different cultures on so many levels via food, music, etc.
Visit Peru and explore its cultural abundance.

All llama love,
모 /Mo/
